Looking for soft drinks with Splenda

Boy have I been searching the markets but the only soft drink
I found that does not contain Aspartame is Diet Rite Cola and it
is made with Splenda. I really am trying not to used foods with
Aspartame. Anyone know of other soft drink that are just Splenda?

Thanks for any help provided

Diet Coke has one made with Splenda as well as the Hansens Brand.

Both the Diet Coke with Splenda and Pepsi One also have ace k as a secondary sweetener.

The Hansen's diet drinks are good and they have some interesting flavors - i.e., tangerine lime, grapefruit, pomegranate; also ginger ale, root beer, etc. They are a tad sweet for my palate any more but they make a nice mixer for a little flavored vodka! I love the raspberry vodka with the grapefruit Hansen's! DH likes the pomegranate and a little tequila.

This isn't a soft drink, but Powerade ZERO is made with sucralose and it is sooooooooooooooo good; no diet taste at all.

Check your local store brands, too. That's where I found the diet rootbeer with sucralose.

Soft Drinks made with Splenda

I buy the Waist Watcher's brand. Made with splenda and lots of great flavors. I like the root beer and orange best.

Diet Shasta has different flavors and they are sweetened with Splenda. I don't know if it is available in all areas though.

Splenda Beverages

Thanks for all of your help. I shall start searching.

We have never heard of Waist Watchers beverages out here in
coast sunny (it's rained for 4 days) California. I'll go online and
do some searching.

You guys are the best for helping us out.

Barbo:

In your search be sure to read the ingredients labels very carefully. Even if the Splenda logo is featured prominently on the front of the can, Splenda may not be the only sweetener used.

Diet Shasta. They have a lot of different flavors too (cola, root beer, orange, blackberry, cream soda, grape, lemon/lime, chocolate). I've only been able to find the brand at discount grocery outlets anymore though.

Most of the Albertson's here in Orange County carry Zevia too Barbo. It's a little spendy at $6.99 a sixpack but someone said you could get a $1 coupon at the website. It's sweetened with Stevia and comes in lots of flavors. You find it in the natural food isle, not the soda isle.

Dad's diet root beer is Splenda/Ace K, if you can find it. (I got a bunch of it at Big Lots, that's the only place I have ever seen it where I live.)

Barbo, When I am in S. CA, I get diet Shasta at 99 Cents Only Stores. They have 2 and 1/2 liter bottles of Shasta diet cola for $0.99. They also carry cans of Diet Shasta flavors.

I buy Weight Watchers ginger ale and rootbeer sold both at a local store and the Stop & Shop markets. Bet you could call WW and ask them where in your area their sodas are sold.

You can make your own with DaVinci's and club soda, unless you are wanting cola flavored, but maybe buy the cola flavoring and use davinci's vanilla or simple syrup. I know they used to sell cola flavoring and they still sell Root beer flavoring here.
I always make blueberry sodas cuz that is something I've never found in the stores and its nice for a change.

Waist Watcher's Rocks!

WaistWatcher's diet soda totally rocks!!! The best root beer I've ever tried (diet or otherwise). The black cherry and vanilla cream are really good as well. All the Waist Watcher's sodas I've tried have a clean, crisp taste. However, they are difficult to find, even though I'm on the east coast.

I also keep tons of Diet Rite in the frig also--Diet Rite is much easier to find in my area. Even Wal-Mart has it. Raspberry is my favorite.

That's a great tip! I have tons of DaVinci sugar-free syrup. Will keep that in mind. Thanks.

I will have to be on the look-out for Diet Shasta and Hansen's and Dad's as well as the Diet Coke with Splenda (I've only found that once when it was first released). I wish more companies would drop the aspartame. I can't believe sugar-free Jello products (gelatin and pudding) still have aspartame Maybe now that "truvia" is out more manufacturers will re-consider their use of nutrasweet.

Regards,
The Huntress

If you have Save-a-Lots near you, their store brand diet sodas are made with sucralose. I highly recommend both their lemon-lime (Crisp) and rootbeer (Tubz). Their Dr. Pepper knock-off is pretty good as well - haven't tried the cola flavor.

I make my own with the SodaClub maker. You can buy it online or at Kohl's or Williams-Sonoma. I don't use their flavors (which I understand are made with Splenda); just make a sparkling water and add some unsweeteened juice concentrate like Cranberry or Cherry.

I found 2 more splenda-sweetened soda brands today

I found 2 more soda brands sweetened with splenda (and with no aspartame) today: Jones sugar-free (they had cream, black cherry and cola (iirc) in my local Weis market). I also found out that Price Chopper's Store Brand is sweetened with splenda. I got the root beer, but there were tons of other diet flavors as well.

I have the soda club soda machine and make my own. The flavors are sweetened with splenda and are really good. You can buy the machine and syrups at the soda club web site and camper world.

I bought some cheap pop at Save A Lot. It was called "Crisp". Generic version of Sprite. I can't remember what it was sweetened with. But anyway, it has a statement on the side of the bottle "DOES NOT CONTAIN ASPERTAME".

I knew I had seen a post somewhere asking about this and I couldn't remember where it was.
